Tremendous turn out. Awesome presentation by msjinkzed. We'll all be considering adding some livestock to our shrimp tanks for sure! Thanks to Bettausa and Furnfins for coming out. We are always happy to meet more tpt members in person.

There's an upcoming event in Queens where msjinkzed will be giving a talk on invert breeding.

If there are a few of us attending, it might be another opportunity for more swapping.

I don't suppose anyone coming from parts north would be willing to give me a ride from the Bronx? I could pay in plants and livestock, or just actual boring money.

Ok so I JUST said, oh, I can't go, I work in the Bronx that day, but then I saw the next comment, and I googled the route and it doesn't look terrible. Because if no one else can give you a ride and there ARE going to be some of us going, I'm willing to give a ride if you have toll money. Someone smarter than me talk me into or out of this thing, I'm bad at decisions.

I don't know if I'm smarter than you but I do know that I have toll money and various plants and livestock you're welcome to should you want any.

The invert talk should be interesting and I really want to buy some microcrabs.

be aware microcrab dig out plant roots. and once you set them free in the tank, you probably won't see them under the day light.

I want pygmy cories, but I think they would be lunch in one tank and eat lunch in the other ...

What the heck. Let's go! I do have to warn that if there's an emergency late in the day, that I may have to cancel at the last minute. PM me for details and make sure I have a phone number, I may not have internet access.

His operation is pretty fantastic, I'm glad I got to see it all, and his plants are very nicely grown. Very nice.

I'm 90% sure you can hop on the Q44 from Main Street to get there, if you want to avoid the walk. Oops, that's another reason to go. :proud:

I'm blushing. Thank you, it was a pleasant trade.

One of my favorite things about having plants in my tanks is the ability to be generous; even if you have no interest in breeding fish or inverts, anyone can grow watersprite or duckweed, and someone else always wants some.
